It's got onto my husband's stripy polo shirt. Any ideas how I get it out.

Have read on here the lemon huice might help. I've tried vanish. Anyone know a magic tip?

Stain Devil does a curry one which you could try. I've managed to get it out using a combination of this, soaking in vanish and washing a few times.

The alternative is to dye the polo shirt.

Oooh! ooh! ooh! For the very first time, a housekeeping question that I know the answer to!

Leave it in bright sunlight and it should fade before your eyes. Admittedly I've only ever confirmed that this works with tupperware, rather than cloth, but it's worth a try.

Assuming you can find some sunlight in the UK at this time of year.
